A strange phenomenon is happening in my state #Uttarakhand If you understand this in context of the "mood of the nation" you will understand what I am talking about. A lot of parents are sending their kids back to GOVERNMENT schools. Yes!
Now, you might ask, what is the big deal? The big deal is that even though it is good news, it is a big blow to the aspirational mindset of a common village family. I will tell you how.
A few years ago, several new "English Medium" schools started sprouting here.
These schools often taught primary classes, sometimes till class 8th. The aim of the schools was to give the "English Medium" education that the rural parents aspired for.
The schools weren't necessarily providing quality education.

#Trekking has been immensely famous amongst the youth residing in mega metropolises and other urban hubs of the country. Seeing it as a good economic opportunity, organizations have begun mass trekking activities which are proving to be fatal for the fragile #mountains!
#Himachal has been struggling to keep its remote and hilly areas clean. With increased trekking activities, plastic waste is a new problem for the villagers. But, organizations like @healinghimalaya have taken it upon themselves to address such a crisis!…

As mountain states of #Himachal & #Uttarakhand resume #tourism, its the local communities that fear the risk of infection. We look at the example from #LahaulSpiti where locals are protesting against the resumed tourism activities.
Analysis by: @Writer_Rishabh & @stoic_gautamkr
#LahaulSpiti is a tribal district in #HimachalPradesh with limited public health resources. Also, more than 50% population in the district suffers from hepatitis. In such a situation, locals are not happy with visitors coming from highly infected cities for a tour in the valley!
With a population of almost 13000, the district is located in the remotest part of the hill state. #SpitiValley is a favorite place amongst the young travelers coming from mega-urban hubs like Mumbai, B'luru, Nodia etc. But, at this moment, locals are opposing any kind of travel.

चीन बॉर्डर पर मिलम रोड का काम तेजी से करने के लिए इस भारी भरकम मशीन को ले जाया जा रहा था, लेकिन यह belly bridge इसका भार सहन नहीं कर पाया और भरभरा कर गिर पड़ा #Pithoragarh #Uttarakhand

In the next 12 states, #Telangana has the worst CFR followed by #Punjab - though the latter is lower than the national CFR.

An excellent project by #Uttarakhand forest executed by Mr. Sandeep Kumar, IFS, DFO #Uttarkashi, using coir geotextile with bamboo pegs and pine needle check dam to protect the pristine #Dayara Bugyal, an #Alpine meadow at an altitude of 11,000 ft in #Uttarakhand.

This eco-friendly measure is not only very effective but has also used local resources providing employment opportunity to the local community.
This was the level of degradation due to anthropogenic pressure before the above innovative intervention. ImageImage

#Uttarakhand is known for its traditional water-management practices. Many traditional systems like Naula (little depression aquifer) and Dhara (springs) are still used as important source of drinking water in many hilly areas especially in the Kumaon region.
Naula and Dhara have been considered as sacred in Uttarakhand’s tradition and culture. Sculptures of Lord Vishnu or any local deity are usually carved onto the walls of the Naula or Dhara to declare it a sacred site and prevent it from being polluted.
There is an urgent need to protect these traditional water resource management systems which are now dying due to loss of traditional knowledge, modernisation and unplanned development.

#करप्शन #तुष्टीकरण #शराब जैसे कई कारणों से उनसे विरोध है,
लेकिन ज़मीन से जुड़ा उनके स्तर का कोई दूसरा नेता नहीं #देवभूमि का!
#गैरसैंण में जो झंडा उन्होंने गाड़ा है उसे और ऊंचा करने के सिवा कोई चारा ही नही !

#Thread | Here's how climate-induced changes in plant behavior are hurting local economies across India.

1⃣ In #Uttarakhand, increasingly warmer winters are making #Rhododendrons bloom earlier than usual; during February-March instead of its usual schedule of March-May.

The season is not the best time for #Rhododendrons, because late winter rains in February-March wash away the blooms, affecting local population dependent on making juice, jams and jellies from the flowers.
